Summer Solstice: A Ritual of Fruition | Online

June 15 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


Circle With Starhawk in an Online Ritual to Honor the Summer Solstice

This is a time of delicious Fruition! The days are long, warmth has returned, and the flowers are blossoming. And yet, once Solstice passes the light begins to decline. The days will grow shorter again. And for the fruit to set, the flower must wither and decay.

Summer Solstice embodies the poignancy inherent in life. In a world where we wrestle daily with the grief of climate crisis and attacks on human rights, it’s easy to be overcome by existential depression. When we embrace the cycle of fruition, we acknowledge that an inherent part of culminating our hopes & dreams involves disappointment and failure— we must learn by trial and error what works and what doesn’t. We become masters of discernment in this cycle, releasing what no longer serves our purpose and moving on to find new, more beneficial lessons to focus on.

But how do you know when it is time to let go, and when to persist?

Summer Solstice offers us an opportunity to accept death and decay as part of the cycle of life, that we might become skillful specialists in the art of cooperation with the natural rhythms of life on earth. When we tap into this potent source of Earth wisdom, we learn to recognize and trust our own knowing more with each day. 

This Solstice, we find ourselves in a moment in time when we question whether the cycle itself can last, whether we have so damaged the processes of the natural world that decay and death will no longer bring renewal. The emotional and ritual work of Solstice can help us move through the fear and despair to find renewed faith in the earth’s resiliency, and renewed commitment to ourselves be agents of regeneration. I look forward to joining you in our collective online ritual, to empower our hearts and minds to embrace both the beauty and withering inherent in all of life.
